Import Storyline file into

Aug 26, 2020

Hey I just made storyline 360 slides. To make a course, can I import them directly into I just created a account. Do i need to go from storyline 360 to Rise 360 then to or can i go straight from Storyline 360 to

If I make a Rise 360 course with embedded Storylines files, can I import these into & still edit them in Or does the editing have to be done is Rise 360 only. I'm a bit confused as it looks like you can make courses on Rise 360 and also in with similar functionality.

Hi Chris, apologies if I haven't understood correctly what you're after, but in order to use Storyline 360 content within Rise you use "Storyline Blocks".

So, I believe the functionality has been built in a way that gives a developer the opportunity to create parts of their content in Storyline 360 if it is impossible for them to create the required interaction within Rise's pre-built interactions.

Here is how to get content into Rise

  • Open Storyline 360 and click Publish
  • Publish the content to Review 360
  • Open Rise 360
  • Click All Blocks

From Interactive, you'll see at the bottom Storyline. Clicking on this will open your review 360 content and you can pick which Storyline file you wish to embed into Rise.

All the best,

Thats for the quick reply. I think I understand how this works from Storyline 360 > Review 360 > Rise 360.

I am actually in the LMS hosting package, not Rise 360. Seems like that "Storyline Block" isn't available in the, only in Rise 360. 

I'll try doing it through Rise 360, then hopefully I can import that course into (the LMS platform).

I've successfully published my Storyline courses as SCORM 1.2 files to both the client's LMS and Scorm Cloud. All working fine. However, when I try to do the same with it gives me a 'file parsing error' and then gives up.

Considering that all of this is ARTICULATE content, one might expect that you could move it around easily.

How is this update going; I still cannot see the option in the interactive tab to import a storyline block into a created course. Above note says it was being worked on over a year ago. Is it going to be available? If not, please advise asap as I need to rewrite my course into Rise 360 import sl blocks and publish then import into to take advantage of the interactive features created in SL!

Hi Juliet and Mark,

A few different conversations are happening here, so I'd like to share a few things:

  1. Storyline 360 content can be embedded into Rise 360 via Storyline Blocks:

  2. Storyline 360 published content can be uploaded to

  3. Rise 360 content can be exported to

Mark, If you're still having difficulty uploading your content, I'd recommend chatting with our Rise team via

Hi Lori,

Welcome to the E-Learning Heroes community!

You came to the right place for help. There are a few different topics being discussed here, and I'm happy to provide some clarity.  The post that mentions managing and importing courses, is specific to

With your Articulate 360 trial, you have full access to Rise 360, which is a separate tool. You can create courses with custom interactivity in Storyline 360, and use Storyline blocks to embed the course in Rise 360. Here's how:

  1. First, publish your Storyline course to Review 360.
  2. Then, in Rise 360, edit an existing lesson or create a new one.
  3. Insert an interactive Storyline block.
  4. Click the Browse Articulate 360 button in the Storyline block.
  5. Select the Storyline course you want to use from your Articulate 360 projects.

If you have additional questions, please let us know! You can reach out here or privately in a support case.

Hi Lisa,

Great question!

Have you tried to change the width of your Storyline block? If you're comfortable sharing your file or providing a screenshot of what you're seeing, I'd be happy to take a closer look. You can upload it here or share it privately in a support case. We'll delete it from our systems once troubleshooting is complete.

Hi, Sara!

Thanks for reaching out and I'm sorry you're experiencing this issue. I'm happy to help troubleshoot and have a few clarifying questions to start.

  • First, I want to confirm that you inserted your Storyline course into your Rise 360 project by using Storyline blocks. Is that correct?
  • Next, it sounds like you can view the Storyline block in edit mode, but not when previewing or publishing the course. What are you seeing instead? Have you tried viewing the course in a different browser?
  • Is this only happening with one Storyline file that you're importing into Rise 360?

Can you please take a screenshot or screen recording of what you're seeing? You can upload that here or share it privately in a support case. We'll delete it from our systems once troubleshooting is complete!

Yes I inserted using storyline blocks, yes I see it in edit mode but not preview and yes only one file as this is the first time I've tried this. However, I did discover if I publish to review, it shows up there. And this morning it is now showing in preview. Maybe have just been a hiccup. I think I'm good for now. Thank you for responding.

Hi, Is there a method to prevent the imported SL text to NOT resize dynamically after it's imported into a RISE scene? 

(The RISE text does not dynamically resize for browser width, but the SL import text does resize, and then the two text blocks do not match.)

Do developers typically avoid using any RISE text on a scene (page) where they have imported a SL slide -- in order to avoid this phenomena?  (Such as  paragraph block just above or below the SL import block.)

I'm not finding any other forum posts with this issue (except where developers have used variables; or where they did not turn off the switch for "auto fit" text - in the SL source file before publishing for the RISE import.  

Thanks for your help.

I opened a brand new post for case this gets buried.

Good question, Lori; I'm happy to share some insights! Storyline blocks that you embed in a Rise 360 course will play the audio associated with the Storyline file. Check out this sample Rise share link using the attached Storyline project.

If you require any further information, please let me know.
